Hey all,

I just finished talking with the Great Escape theaters here in Omaha. We will have 3 separate events. This thread is for Friday, August 15th from 6pm - 10pm. If you can only do part of this, that would be OK too. Just let me know!

Please click on the registration above so that we may plan accordingly.

We might do the Jedi Training Academy. I'll have to coordinate that with the 501st. The theater will be letting us have sole use their balcony for the duration of the events. All events will be joint events with the 501st.

I probably won't be there right at 6. My wife gets done with work at 6, so I have to pick her up first, then go after dropping her and Keira off at home. Wink

I'm reconsidering....

After making the comic shop rounds today and hearing all the politics and bs going on between the shops and theaters over this (not to mention Rusty is telling places we're handing out flyers for them ie: anyone who sides with Rusty and Great Escapes?) I'm not sure it's something I (or we for the matter) need to be a part of. Seems like ever since FCBD we've been viewed more as a marketing tool and less of what we're supposed to be for.

Geez, some of those comic guys do like to talk.... I have also heard some rumblings but will go to what I committed to. Politics aside, I think it would look worse not having anyone show up after it was promoted we'd be there.

We were handing out flyers at the Great Escape Theaters promoting the Movie. We weren't necessarily promoting the theater, but just the movie. I don't get some people. Like Mark said, we are not supposed to promote any event or company other than Star Wars related events and Lucasfilm itself.

Handing out stuff for the theater or the movie is fine, thats (a small) part of why we're there. However it was made to sound to me that Rusty was telling places we'll be handing out stuff for anyplace that's "with" him, if you take my meaning. Hence my feeling that we're being treated like a marketing ploy: "Hey, support me and we'll have stormtroopers hand out your flier during the Clone Wars movie"
I could be wrong (wouldnt be the first time) and it could just be Rusty running his mouth (again, not the first time) but it was presented to me in such a way that it seemed like we weren't asked there to promote SW and the Clone Wars, but to promote Great Escapes and anyone that "sides" with their promotions.

For my part I'm hoping its more a case of double talk, misunderstanding and just general smoke blowing between them all than it is truthful.

I see what you mean. The flyers we handed out last week were about the movie opening and the "Star Wars" events on Saturday. The only reference I saw to anyplace else was on the wall by the poster where there was reference to 2 comic book stores where merchandise is available. I suppose the flyer could be taken as we are supporting a certain theatre but I didn't have that feeling when I was there.

Wow, why do some people (non-legion members) we do events for have to get all "dark side" - "If you're not with me, then you're my enemy"? Well, we just need to get out and tell people that we have no loyalties to anyone other than Lucasfilm. We need to stress that kind of thing.

I'm still going out to the Great Escape theater tonight simply because I told Rusty I would. Although, after Saturday's event, it might be a while before I go back there.
